WINARC is always there to help

WINARC has activities

WINARC was founded over 50 years ago by a group of parents and young adults with disabilities. This grassroots organization of families recognized the need for social and recreational participation in the community for their children, and they committed their efforts to creating those opportunities.

Through the tremendous support of Winthrop and its surrounding communities, WINARC’s community partnerships with businesses and families have ensured the successful operation of its current programs, as well as the development of new programming to fulfill the ever growing needs of children and adults with disabilities.

WINARC welcomes new members and volunteers in all our programs. Our volunteers are the backbone of our organization, and can be credited with the success of our programs.
